The final week of our Instagram Takeover was run by local farmer, Matthew Dale. Providing a great insight into life on his farm which supplies malting barley for St Austell Brewery’s Tribute and Skinners’ ales, Matthew shared a variety of images showing what he got up to over the seven days. Here are just some of our favourite pictures from the week.

A great shot to start the week off! Working hard to harvest Propino malting barley for Skinners Brewery in the beautiful summer sunshine.

Definitely achieving a cuteness factor of 10 – we loved Matthew’s picture of this little guy who he found wandering around the farm during the day.

Found this little fella out wandering around during the day. Put him somewhere where he was safer.

Taking some time out from the harvest - what better way to spend the day than out on the water?

Grabbing some leisure time with the boat when not harvesting.

Finally, we love this photo of a swan joining Matt at the beautiful Pandora Inn during the bank holiday weekend. What a view to enjoy whilst enjoying a drink on the pontoon!

One swan minus the canine confrontation
